Interesting use case. I have never considered using this with Kibana but it makes perfect sense. I could see pulling out the elastic search query with this as helpful for debugging. As far as redirecting to an output file, brilliant! I never considered doing something like that!

And as far as tokens, you are absolutely right. However, when developing the API, I always find it handy when someone can give me that so I can quickly masquerade as that user to see if there is something breaking that my user otherwise would not see.

Thanks for your comment! I look forward to implementing that idea!
